Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

That goes without saying. I know there are a lot of fans that dislike DeConnick's work on the book, but I am not one of them. The first volume started off very slowly, and I nearly dropped, but my fondness for the character made me keep it, and I never regretted it. Once it got into it's arc it's been great IMO.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

I caught up on the last four months of Ultimates.

Kang is in town.

Kang is a girl.

Kang used to be the Scarlet Witch.

Kang is saying things like "No more Mutants".

^ Actually Ultimate Kang is Future Sue Storm. She lied to Pietro

Duuuude.

I was trying to sell the storyline without spoiling the final revelation.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Sorry. It always astonishes me when people are still reading Ultimate books. It was a really cool moment...and I was fooled too for a while.

Well it's not like there's a lot of them any more.

Ultimate X-Men and Ultimates despite some rare moments need to be put down.

^ Indeed. I can't wait for Cataclysm. Hunger has been good so far.

I don't read the press any more.

The future surprises me.

Sometimes the past too when I have to go back and find cool stuff I missed.

I stopped reading the Ultimate line once Mark Millar left and they killed Spidey. Good jumping OFF point. I am reading "Hunger" though just cause Actual-Galactus is in it.

Relaunching Captain Marvel with a new number one seems a bit desperate. I'm sure as a`first issue the sales will be good, but will the next issues sell any better than the current series?
Hopefully yes since they can't have Fraction walking out of Marvel and going to work for their competition now.

I forgot DeConnick and Fraction are married.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Relaunching Fantastic Four with a #1 reeks of a collapse in confidence on the book, you just did this not 20issues ago.

Same for Captain Marvel....trying very, very hard to make her work, forcing the public to make her an A-list character. She's becoming the female Punisher as far as revolving door of titles.

I miss when titles had some prestige in their numbering, a legacy to them.
The industry took the piss on that, desensitizing new readers(of which I'm not convinced is that vast) and alienating a lot of older ones.

At least a lot of those are characters that haven't had a shot in awhile so a #1 is justified such as Elektra, She-Hulk(walters), New Warriors, Black Widow, Ghost Rider, Inhumans and Invaders.

Re: Marvel Now/ReEvolution Ongoing Discussion (Spoilers)

Speedball is trying to get the band back together in Nova.

Here's the weird thing, Nova doesn't know who the frakk Speedball is despite Robbie being raked by the press for the death of 600 civilians in Stamford, the poster child for Super hero registration and the ignition of civil war... Which marvel time was all but months ago.

Kids are idiots.

Yeah I found it pretty hard to believe that he never heard of Speedball. Speedball was the Osama Bin Laden of the Marvel Universe briefly.

I'm pretty certain that was Captain America. Speedball was more the Mohammed Atta of superheroes.
